Patrick Lazerenko is a punk teen in Montreal when he first meets Hernan García, the Spanish immigrant owner of a neighbourhood grocery store. Caught trying to vandalize Hernan's store, Patrick is roped into working off the damages, and when he sees Hernan's backroom medical consultations with local immigrants, he's inspired to become a doctor himself. Years later, a journalist exposes Hernan - dubbed the Angel of Lepaterique - as having been mixed up in the CIA-backed torture of subversive citizens in Honduras in the 1980s. Some descriptions of violence. Some descriptions of sex. Some strong language. c2007.
